    Urgent help needed c:/ drive errors.

    Okay so my girlfriend purchased a sony vaio running windows 8 and she turned it one the other day and noticed she had no apps any more. I tried also accesing her c:/ drive and it says it has 0 bytes in it.

    I cannot do the following.

    Go into settings.
    run Wsreset.exe i get '' windows cannot find 'ms-windows-store:PurgeCaches'. make sure you typed the name right, then try again.
    i've tried using google, youtube, everything to try get this thing fixed, the next thing i'll try is a brick.

    please help guys it'll be a life saver if someone can help.
